How to remove the PS3 Slim hard drive

Submitted by on Monday, 24 August 20094 Comments

PS3 SlimWe’ve all seen the pics and lusted after the slimmer version of Sony’s behemoth, but what if 120 GB just won’t cut it in your media rich world?

With rumours flying around Gamescom faster than pro-skaters running from the Tony Hawk Ride demo area, one particular insidious falsehood that could be heard echoing around the halls of Cologne was that, this time out, Sony would not be letting Giga-whores switch-out the PS3 hard drive.

Of course, the noise turned out to be just that – a strange Chinese whisper that seemed to emanate straight out of the back-chatter.

If you want to know how to change the hard drive in your new and slimmed down PS3, check out this video from Engadget who not only confirm it’s possible, they’ve videoed the procedure for posterity.
